Funny Things :)

Well as you know, here in SouthAsiaLand, we always see funny things... things that really make us laugh! So today I'm going to share with you a few of thing things that have made us laugh in the last few weeks :)

This one speaks for itself:
This guy in the pic below was our rickshaw driver the other day... I liked his sporty jacket :) I think that was the first time I had ever seen the words "Hamster" and "Sporty" used together... hahaha I don't think any hamster I ever had was sporty... well, except for that whole wheel-running thing :)
Now this guy was creative! When Adam & I were riding our scooters around Phuket Thailand, we saw this guy going for a walk with his baby.... He had somehow attached wheels to this baby carrier thing and then tied a string to it... he was pulling her up and down these hills and over those cobble stones on the left - it was pretty funny! The baby was loving it!
This is a Mannequin that I saw in Thailand last week.... I couldn't stop laughing when I saw it... I thought it was hilarious!And last - but not least - back in SouthAsiaLand... the land of extremes :) - we were going down the road the other day and saw a stand selling Chandeliers on the side of the road! (and some sort of inflatable dog thing on the left)... it made me laugh!

I laughed out loud at the baby roller. I wish I could hire him to take Kiran out.

Man, you would never see a parent doing that with a baby in the states! (Meaning the rolling bouncy seat.) If someone tried, they'd get snatched up by Children and Families so fast... Looks like fun though :)

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand). Everyon…
